Clinical Innovation

Monash Partners and the Monash Institute of Medical Engineering (MIME) have formed a strategic partnership to help turn clinical problems into real world solutions.

Health service clinicians together with biomedical engineers and health information and communications technology researchers offer ground-breaking clinical and community driven innovation initiatives which lead the way to development, translation and impact within health care.

MIME works as an established clinical innovation platform offering technology solutions in the form of new devices, diagnostics, therapeutics, IT, digital health, advanced analytics, delivery systems and clinical tools for urgent and unmet clinical and patient needs.

MIME’s core objectives to deliver are:

  1. Health outcomes driven by clinical need.
  2. High impact research.
  3. Workforce capacity building.

Some examples of the work produced includes:

  • an Australian first robotic exoskeleton to allow minimally invasive surgery for children
  • non-invasive wearable technology to detect seizure events in patients with epilepsy
  • a point-of-care device to detect elevated troponin-1 levels indicating heart attack and inform decision making regarding hospitalisation
  • a new approach to assessment of bone healing, eliminating the need for X-Ray or CT, to guide when mobilisation can occur.

We are truly proud to be a part of the only Australian platform which creates an end to end pipeline, turning clinical health problems into innovative solutions which deliver a huge impact within the community.
